5 Young Players Who Could Get a Big Money Move After the Euros

Euro 2020

Illya Zabarnyi – Dynamo Kyiv

Illya Zabarnyi is a name that will not be too familiar from outside of his homeland, as the Dynamo Kyiv man is just 18-years-old, despite putting in a commanding and mature performance at centre back for Ukraine in their 2-1 victory over North Macedonia.

The Dynamo Kyiv youth academy product played 21 times as his side won the Ukrainian Premier League, finishing 11 points clear of Shakhtar Donetsk, as well as beating Zorya Luhansk in the Ukrainian Cup final.

Zabarnyi also had a good time on the European stage for his club, helping Dynamo progress through the qualifying rounds against AZ Alkmaar and Gent, before finishing third in Group G behind Juventus and Barcelona, which ultimately saw Kyiv take on Belgian champions Club Brugge who they saw off 2-1 on aggregate, but they fell short in the round of 16 against eventual champions Villarreal, losing 4-0 on aggregate.

Having already made 10 appearances for Ukraine, as well as showcasing his skills across Europe across major competitions, a move for Zabarnyi would be logical this summer for any big-name suitors that are interested, as ultimately the signing of the 18-year-old now could save clubs from forking out a much larger transfer fee in future years.

Adam Hlozek – Sparta Prague

Czech Republic striker Adam Hlozek will be a name that is familiar to those who play video games such as Football Manager, but, to many people’s delight in the Czech Republic, the 18-year-old prodigy looks set to fulfil his potential on the basis of real-life form.

Hlozek has made just four appearances for his National Side, including 18 minutes against Scotland in the Czech’s 2-0 victory at Hampden Park, of which all of these caps are well earned and more are likely to come in the future, as the 18-year-old found the back of the net 15 times in 19 appearances for Sparta Prague last campaign, as well as creating eight assists, helping his side to a second-place finish behind rivals Slavia Praha.

If Hlozek lives up to his potential of being the best outfield player to come out of the Czech Republic since the likes of Tomas Rosicky and Pavel Nedved then the 18-year-old will certainly be linked with bigger names than the likes of West Ham who he was rumoured to be catching the eye of earlier this month.

Alexander Isak – Real Sociedad

Here is perhaps a more familiar name to those reading this article in Sweden striker Alexander Isak.

The 21-year-old striker had an impressive season in La Liga with Real Sociedad, scoring 17 goals in 34 matches, seeing the former Borussia Dortmund man finish as the league’s sixth top scorer as he fired the Basque club to a fifth-place finish, meaning that they will take part in next season’s Europa League once again.

Having been unlucky not to score in Sweden’s 0-0 draw against Spain, where Isak’s side had just 15% possession in the whole game, the young prodigy will get at last two more opportunities at Euro 2020 to add to his international tally of five goals against the likes of Slovakia and Poland, of which he is more than capable of when considering he was involved in 32% of Sociedad’s La Liga goals.

Jurrien Timber – Ajax

20-year-old Ajax centre-back Jurrien Timber is another young defender who comes into this tournament looking like a player that is older than his years in terms of maturity and composure in his overall play.

The Ajax man, who was taken from Feyenoord’s youth academy back in the summer of 2014, has made a big impact in what is his breakthrough season for the Dutch champions, as he played 20 times as both a right-back and centre-back for the Amsterdam based club, as they went on to retain the Eredivisie title, even managing to notch himself a goal in a 4-0 win over Emmen on the way.

Following his impressive start to life in Ajax’s first team, he has impressed so much that he was called up to Frank De Boer’s squad for the European Championships, where he started and played the full game against Ukraine as the Dutch won 3-2 at the Johan Cruyff Arena, of which neither goals were down to him, as one was a long-range strike from West Ham’s Andriy Yarmolenko, whilst the other was a free header from Roman Yaremchuk who took advantage of some shoddy marking by Wout Weghorst.

It will certainly be interesting to see how Timber progresses as the tournament moves along, as the Netherlands still have to face the likes of Austria and North Macedonia in their group, but, if they are to comfortably advance as they are expected to, then good matches against the biggest national teams on the continent could potentially see the 20-year-old attract a lot of interest.

Owen Wijndal – AZ Alkmaar

The final player on this list is another that comes from the Netherlands in Owen Wijndal.

The AZ Alkmaar left-back might have only played 26 minutes against Ukraine on matchday one, but, his role might become more prominent ahead of former Crystal Palace full-back Patrick van Aanholt as the tournament progresses, having started seven of the Oranjes last eight matches before their recent victory in Amsterdam.

Wijndal is known to be an attacking full-back, having created two assists in a 7-0 win against Gibraltar March’s World Cup qualifiers, as well as also making one in a 1-1 draw with Spain in an international friendly last November. Many believe that the 21-year-old is currently the best left-back in the Netherlands ahead of the likes of Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico and it will only be a matter of time before the AZ man moves, well, there would be no better stage for the Dutchman to prove himself than an international tournament.

The 21-year-old full-back, Wijndal, didn’t miss a single minute of football for AZ, playing every single match in the Eredivisie and Europa League, as his side narrowly exited the latter competition, behind Real Sociedad and Napoli, as well as helping AZ to a third-placed finish, just a single point behind PSV.

Alike his international teammate Timber, Wijndal will have plenty of opportunities to prove himself as a capable wing-back once again for his country, having managed three goals and 15 assists in 100 matches for his club side AZ, since making his debut back in the 2016/17 season.
